*The "Southwestern Pennsylvania Area" includes all or parts of the following nine counties: Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler, Beaver, Lawrence, Jefferson, Mercer, Westmoreland, Indiana.

** The number in parenthesis equals the number of nesting pairs displaced (or cavities closed that would very likely have had nesting martins had they not been closed.)

 *** Indicates colonies likely started as a result of "forced dispersal"; forced dispersal in 2010 resulted in activity at numerous sites that did not result in nesting martins. An article will be upcoming.
